We were hoping for more fish caught. Needed at least two extra rods in case one broke   Needed options for bait other than artificial

We got lucky & were able to book a last-minute trip with Capt Kevin Nicholls during the Memorial Day weekend. We set out at 7am for a day of successful fishing. My wife had never been Bay Fishing before & Capt Kevin was able to give her some pointers which resulted in her catching the biggest Speckled Trout of the day. Our conversation w/ Capt Kevin was also very enjoyable. We would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a good captain. We will call on him again.

Capt. Kevin knew all the best fishing holes.  We didn’t have the best weather, but he managed to turn us on to reds and trout anyway.  Very patient guide.  Would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting an experienced guide.

Had a great time. Caught some good size fish especially red fish. I had to tell Captain Kevin it was time for me to go in or we might still be fishing.

Jesse was a very seasoned angler…. I was really trying to put him on some catch and release fish. Fishing was pretty much throwing plastics that day plus some cut bait…. Jesse was right I probably would have kept him out there all day…LOL
